This Weeks Featured Show

Dinner with your family
Thursday November 24th

Yeah yeah yeah.  There are some good shows this week but c’mon what bigger show is there than sitting down with your crazy-ass family.  Sure you’ve got relatives with some drama, you’ll probably get slapped for cursing at the table, cringe at some weirdo thing your folks say (at least once), and there is always some nasty ass thing your mom makes that you have to pretend you like but, hey, that’s the price of this American tradition.  The bright side is we all get a day off, most of the food is pretty damn good, it’s the one time of year you can be a glutton and not feel guilty…well at least until the day after…and as crazy as everyone is, it’s still nice to get together and share a meal and give thanks for all the good stuff that’s come your way.
